Electronic Press Kit
Melbourne singer/songwriter Melissa Ramsay is one of the Australia's emerging alternative indie pop artists. She first became interested in writing her own music when she listened to City and Colour. 2015 saw the release of ‘Ghosts', a high energy dance song in collaboration with ARIA Award winning Feenixpawl as well as 'Home' with Feenixpawl, Bynon and Project 46. 'Loaded', by Just A Gent featuring Melissa’s vocals, was released in 2016. This saw Melissa accompanying Just a Gent on stage and performing the song live at Splendour in the Grass Festival.
Her ethereal 2019 debut single 'Halo' produced and mixed by Hayden Francis (Woodes, Wolfjay), was premiered by Purple Sneakers and described as "soul-tinged, minimal electronic at its best." 2020 has produced a string of releases such as Ramsay’s second single ‘Promises’ produced and mixed by Hayden Francis, featured on Amazing Radio and Wolf in a Suit, and ‘Alone’ with Naes London amassing over 100k Spotify streams.
Collaborations & Singles
Telling the story of anxiety, loneliness and hope for the future, ‘Free’ details feelings that Ramsay believes many can relate to globally. Showcasing Ramsay’s warm and delicate vocals and complimented by Francis’ celestial soundscape, ‘Free’ gently builds with the pervasive soft piano, recorded in a rural Victorian church, and slowly adds layers of glimmering synths and acoustic guitars over a relaxed beat. ‘Free’ is as a floaty, light and luminous indie-pop offering from Ramsay.
Free Music Video
'Free' is represented in this quarantine style music video with a Spring/Summer theme that Ramsay single-handedly filmed and edited. Ramsay's pets steal the show alongside scenes of nature which Ramsay rediscovered the importance of during quarantine.
